    I admitt, I had a tojiro itk I took the handle off and ordered some nice burls to attempt my first half a $$ attempt at a wa. After trying to make cheap handles out of pine and succeeding within reason, I still haven't touched the burls. The feer if ruining the wood and an absolutle lack of time due to my first sin, 6 months old, doesnt allow it. My reground, kurouchi remived and polished blade sits in my garage with surface rust building.. shameful

    So sorry. It was just such a great idea. My home shop is trashed. My workspace is a mess, and I'm a month behind setting up a we work station. I'm in no position to judge anybody.

    I have a drawer full of various vintage carbons, and a shelf full of wood, but lately when I get home from work, I just want to eat a bowl of ice cream, watch a little TV, and go to sleep.

    No harm man; I just thought it was funny.The thing is that in order to finish something with that box I have to make a call to someone else who is also way behind on doing something for me. The point of this thread is that passions take a lot of time and energy and invariably those passions get derailed at points -- and that's ok.

    I made a brief attempt at fixing the pitting in the blade of a yanagi. I screwed it up royally.
    I was going to have the maker fix the pitting but now they will have a much bigger job.
    Nothing earth shattering right? It's the 390 Mizuno Tanrenjo Blue DX honyaki.
    The horror.

    Once I started making knives, I lost interest in collecting knives. I have 3 knives I use regularly, all made by me. However, I still enjoy getting hands on any performing knife to study it.

    My confession: I still have OOTB edges on a good number of my knives (which is a count significantly higher than Marko's slim, trim 3!). In fact, this morning I'm going to be *finally* properly opening 2 deba that I've already had in my active rotation for over a month now.

    I only get to fit in sharpening time on the occasional weekend mornings now, before my wife wakes up and before I have to start working on A, B, C, or X, Y, Z.
